Winemaker Notes
When we started making wine, we were constantly being asked to make an everyday wine. A wine that was made in the image of a typical Riojano wine but also affordable. That is where “The Mix” comes in, our tribute to a classic wine from Rioja. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Monastrell with an occasional vintage also having Graciano, we affectionately call “The Mix” our “Patio Pounder”. Aged for 2.5 years in barrels and then bottle aged for 1 year, this food friendly wine has nice bright acidity, bright red fruit with undertones of tobacco and pomegranate. At a retail price of $16/bottle and an alcohol less than 14%, you can enjoy multiple bottles of this wine in one sitting on the patio.
